"I couldn't let the day pass without sending my condolences and addressing possible catalyst for this tragic situation. I lived in Orlando for years, and I've been to Pulse several times. I cannot imagine the hurt and disbelief they are experiencing. My heart is with Pulse Orlando." -
Kia Comedy, Activist/Comedienne
At least 50 people were killed and 50 more wounded in Orlando, Florida where a gunman went on a horrific shooting spree at Orlando's Pulse Nightclub. Gay clubs hold a significant place in LGBTQ history. They were often the only safe gathering place and this horrific act strikes directly at our sense of safety. Far too many Orlando families lost their loved ones in a deplorable act of violence.
The More Love Less Hate Benefit Show will include LGBTQ and allied entertainers. Hosted by Diamond Kesawn, Editor-in-Chief of Raynbow Affair Magazine, the show will feature comedians Kia Comedy, Storhm Artiste and Blu Mutha. Musical performances will include Tyra B, Jeda Sky, Veronica Lynn, Khaos Da Rapper, Steezo Da Champ, and B. Edge.
Proceeds from this site and the Benefit Show will be donated to OneOrlando Fund. The Fund was announced by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer as a way to help respond to the needs of the community, now and in the time to come, after the effects of the Pulse tragedy. The Fund will assist nonprofit organizations supporting the victims and families and the LGBTQ, Hispanic, and other affected communities. It will also help investigate the underlying causes of the tragic event and other needs as they arise.
